Rainbow Six Three: Raven Shield issues


       I am trying to find a way to play Rainbow Six Three: Raven Shield on my newer Dell Computer (4GB DDR2 RAM, 2.3 Ghz AMD Anthlon 4400+ Core 2 Duo processor, Galaxy GeForce 8600GT 256MD low profile graphics card, Windows Vista 32-bit OS).

    I have been told that this particular game will not run with Windows Vista; every time I try to load it on, it gets a specific warning stating that a 'critical error has been detected' or something like that.  However, I tried loading it on to a friend's XP computer, and the same error occured at the same time during the load. 

    Is this a compatability issue with dual-core processors?

    I am looking at buying         http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822144122

    this or a similar small hard-drive to stick in my computer and format for XP. 

    However, if there is an issue with dual-core processors, I may just be throwing away forty or fifty dollars.


                                                   If anyone knowns what I'm talking about, I'd appreciate it.
